Cow Mover
A homemade attachment lets Albert O’Neill use the bucket on his telehandler to lift and move down animals. The attachment fits into slots on back of the bucket. Two metal poles extend vertically to support a horizontal winch that runs the width of the bucket. Two lengths of rope drop down and attach to the cow’s feet.
  The low speed, high torque winch operates off the telehandler hydraulics. As the winch winds the ropes in to bring the cow closer, the operator slowly tilts the bucket upward to complete the loading process.
  O’Neill also developed a removable magnetic pillow for the cow’s head. It snaps over either end of the bucket, depending on the animal’s position.
